Weavers

Andreja Rauch

Weavers is a display of four individual exhibits - situations presented in a sequence of four stories. Each of the four move before the viewer; each has its own name, and each establishes its own world, whilst one sacrifices its title for the sake of the entity. The first piece entitled Spring Water is a prologue, while the second, Pavers, talks about the endless displacement of sediment deposited through time. These works are followed by the Two Gatherers, a narrative about the attachment and addiction to people and property. The performance is concluded by Weavers, in which the performers focus on weaving the pattern of a carpet that should in the end document the performance and round it up as an entity.

The exhibits of the story are not directly inter-connected. The space between the end of one story and the beginning of another is presented as an independent entity in which the presence of (non)performance is a tool of the play.
